You Could - Poem by John Carter Brown

You could, and you should,
If you did, did you 'dould '
Is this sentence confusing your brain?
If it's not then it's clear
That you're like Edward Lear,
Either that or you're going insane.

Written July 1994

    That's an interesting limerick. I had to Google Edward Lear. Sorry about that. Very funny! (Report) Reply
